Christ Church offers a diverse co-curricular programme encompassing sport, the arts and a wide range of activities. Co-curricular offerings provide opportunities for boys to express their uniqueness and develop in confidence. Boys at all year levels are encouraged to get involved in a range of activities to diversify their experiences.
A range of co-curricular activities are available to students of all interests and skill levels, including cadets, chess, debating, mock trials, solar car challenge, sailing, and creative writing.
The ultimate objective of the Outdoor Education programme is to develop each boy's positive self concept.
Sport is an important part of the co-curricular programme at Christ Church. Boys are required to participate in regular training and organised weekly fixtures in the summer and winter sport of their choice. At all times the school emphasises participation, fair competition, enjoyment and recreation.
As one of the seven independent schools forming the Public Schools' Association (PSA) of Western Australia, Christ Church Grammar takes part in regular competition in all the conventional sports. Most boys have an inter-school game in their chosen sport each week. The school has a proud tradition of skills development, team-building and success in PSA competition, particularly in rowing, swimming, cricket, basketball, tennis, hockey, rugby and football.
This highly regarded programme is supported in over 140 countries around the world with more than 7 million young people involved. Christ Church Grammar School is a Licenced Operator of The Award, enabling our young people to take full advantage of the diverse co-curricular, sporting and cultural opportunities offered by the School. The Award is designed to be an individual challenge based on the unique interests of each participant in the areas of physical recreation, skill, volunteering and adventurous journey.
Awards are made to boys in recognition of their contribution to activities and sports.
Outdoor Education is an integral part of the programme to develop the character and skills of Christ Church boys. Challenge, initiative, self-reliance, leadership, teamwork, responsibility, healthy risk-taking, communal living and environmental care are all promoted through annual camps that engage boys from Years 5 to 10. The programme takes them to the School’s outdoor education campus at Kooringal, to Shark Bay aboard the Leeuwin and culminates in a 10 day ‘venture’ to Walpole.
